J.D. has become chief resident and is flaunting his new title and pay check all over the hospital. J.D.'s new sense of pride seems to be especially hurtful to Turk, who is still a resident and currently being denied more difficult surgeries by his new attending physician. Turk's ego is further hurt when J.D. doubts his abilities as a surgeon. J.D. and Elliot's relationship has taken a turn for the worse when J.D. is accidentally called the co-Chief Resident and Elliot the Chief Resident. This mix-up lifts Elliot's post break-up spirits.

Dr. Cox and Jordan are having relationship problems as well when they find out that their divorce was not final. Dr. Cox's other annoying woman in his life, Dr. Molly Clark, faces off with him over a plastic surgery patient.

Goofs: Right near the beginning, Jordan adjusts Cox's stethoscope and collar. The end of the stethoscope then goes back and forth between inside and outside of his coat for the remainder of the scene.

  • When Dr. Cox gets to Molly and she says "I gave you every opportunity to do the right thing" she covers her mouth with her hands. It cuts to behind her and her hand is down.
  • When JD and Turk are trying their latex suits Turk has a black scarf around his neck. Then JD says "You're mad because I make more money than you.", Turk turns around and the scarf is gone.
